Dear Dignity Friend,
Hope you are having a good week.
This week, join us for Potluck after Mass to celebrate DIGNITY SAN ANTONIO’S 39th ANNIVERSARY!
Celebrating GBLT Catholics our families and friends since 1976!
We hope and pray that this weekly message will nurture you spiritually and be especially helpful in the more difficult times of life.
In your loving kindness,
in your compassion,
turn toward me.
Do not hide your face;
for I am in distress.
Come close and
Save me from my foes.
It’s not considered ”nice,”
it’s not often considered Christian,
sometimes it’s not even considered healthy to talk about enemies and anger.
But the psalmist does. The psalmist is a realist.
The psalmist knows what we hate to admit:
there are people in out lives we consider enemies.
We have moments of irascible anger—
the messy kind, the embarrassing kind.
And we don’t know what to do about it.
But the psalmist does.
The psalmist seeks God and
the psalmist seeks refuge and the psalmist seeks comfort.
To deal with anger and enemies properly, we all need the same.
Lack any one of those things and anger can poison life
like one drop of ink in five gallons of water.
Think about it
